A private graveside service was held Wednesday (April 1) in Montreal for longtime Quebec racehorse owner and breeder Morris Feldman, who died Tuesday after several months in hospital with lung issues at the age of 82.

Feldman, who headed the children's clothing company Kidstuff Creations for almost three decades, had his biggest success in Standardbred racing as co-owner of trotter Incredible Abe, a winner of almost $1 million in the 1990s.

Incredible Abe, raised at Feldman's farm in St. Lazare, QC, was a star of the New York Sires Stakes circuit at two. In 1994, as a three-year-old, he captured a rare double, the $370,000 Orsi Mangelli Trot in Italy and the $400,000 Breeders Crown final at Garden State Park.

As a stallion, Incredible Abe produced the likes of Abbey Road C and Monte Hall.

Feldman also bred Quebec Sires Stakes pacing star Witch S Better.

"Morris just loved the business. He could talk horses all day. He was a really nice guy, very soft-spoken. But he could be tough on trainers; he`d flip them often," recalled friend Rick Karper.

Feldman sold his farm a few years ago but remained active in the sport as a consultant for Coyote Wynd Farm, whose trotting filly The Ice Dutchess won the 2018 O'Brien Award. Coyote Wynd's owner, John Floren, had been a neighbour and friend of Feldman in the late 1980s and the families remained close. Feldman was front and centre in the photo on awards night.

Morris Feldman is survived by his wife Palma and children David, Marla, Lorne, Rachel and Eleasa.

Kim and I only really got to know Morris the last 4 years. In that short time quickly respected his fairness and frankness. His zest for life and enthusiasm for harness racing will be missed.   Condolences to the Feldman family.
